This is the new Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU card with a new series of capabilities.
Hello guys, This is the Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU card, It comes with the new Ampere architecture.
According to Nvidia, this architecture provides better performance than the Turning architecture.
The Ampere architecture is 1.9x better in performance than the Turning architecture found in RTX 2000s series.
The difference in performance between them is significant, The RTX 3080 is 2x better in performance than the RTX 2080.
In general, the card is great for 4K gaming with high frames.
The card supports AI’s DLSS 2.0 technology, which could provide more than 100fps in 4K gaming.
One of the components that are developed in this GPU is the Tensor Cores.
The GPU comes with double the amount of cores, which are being used by AI.
One of the technologies supported by these cores is the DLSS 2.0.
This technology provide better performance, smoothness and higher frame rates.
Ray Tracing technology is also enhanced and is 2x times better than before.
With Ray Tracing, the performance and frame rate are supposed to be better.
The RTX 3080 supports Nvidia Reflex technology, which minimizes the lag, especially in competitive games.
At the same time, it adjusts the system’s latency.
Also, it comes with a new technology that lets the mouse’s clicks register very quick.
Once you click the mouse, it’ll be registered in the CPU, then the GPU and then it’ll appear on the screen, With the Reflex technology, this process is sped up.
Reflex technology is compatible with Fortnite and will soon be supported with other competitive games.
The card supports a new technology from Nvidia called Broadcast.
This feature is of great help for streamers. You can isolate the background or remove it without needing a green screen background, The app tracks your face while recording and isolate noises.
After experimenting with it, it does work by isolating the background but the quality varies depending on the light.
Most of features work, but sometimes, they’re not that accurate.
The app is in the Beta version, I am excited for the the final version of it.
The card is not only powerful with gaming, but also in video editing software, The card works great with video rendering.
The RTX 3080 comes with 10GB of GDDR6X RAM with 19Gbps speed.
The card also comes with the 8704 Cuda Core, and compared to the RTX 2080Ti, it is 2x bigger.
The frequency of the GPU is 1.7GHz with 8nm architecture build.
I feel like the gap between Cuda cores GPUs and Gaming GPUs is getting smaller and smaller.
Nvidia want all their GPUs to be powerful in all aspects.
The power consumption on this GPU is 320W, and the suggested power supply by Nvidia is 750W.
The GPU comes with a 12-bin port for power supply, and it comes with a 12-bin cable to 2x 8-bin cables.
The card comes with an HDMI 2.1 port and it is capable of running 4K content with 120fps.
It also supports 8K with HDR enabled, The card comes with 3x DisplayPort 1.4a.
The card comes with 2 fans, one on the inside and the other on the outside.
The cooling system is 3x quieter and reduces heat up to 20 degrees compared to the RTX 2080.
This cooling system is currently found in the Founders Edition.
In 3DMark Time Spy test, the GPU scored 15596 points.
I tested the GPU with 4K content with the highest frames.
In Doom Eternal game, the GPU scored between 121 to 162 frames.
In Battlefield 5 game with Ray Tracing and DLSS enabled, the GPU scored between 69 to 82 frames.
In Fortnite games, with Ray Tracing and DLSS enabled, the GPU scored between 73 to 84 frames.
In Death Stranding game, with DLSS enabled, the GPU scored between 121 to 137 frames.
In Minecraft Beta, with Ray Tracing and DLSS enabled, the GPU scored between 88 to 89 frames.
By the way, in this game, the Ray Tracing technology on works with the Beta version.
The RTX 3080 costs 699 USD, This is the price of the Founders Edition GPU.
There will be other versions soon, and the prices will be slightly different than the Founders Edition.
This GPU is the best to play 4K games with 60fps.
It is also very great to play 2K games with 120fps.
It supports DLSS 2.0 technology, which will significantly increase the performance.
Even with 4K games, Ray Tracing is supposed to provide more than 60fps.
Sometimes, the fan noise could be loud with some games when played on the highest configurations.
This is usually reduced in other GPU cards, The card consumes high energy.
You might want to change the power supply in your computer for this GPU to work.
Nvidia suggests using a 750W power supply, I am very excited for other versions of this new series.
Nvidia’s GPUs have become monsters with high capabilities, I am excited for more Nvidia GPUs on laptops and desktops.
This is the end of this blog guys, see you soon with other reviews.
